Photocopier Recycling and Disposal

Photocopiers are an essential piece of equipment in any office. You come to rely on them for every day printing and copying tasks. But,when your photocopier becomes end of life, you must consider it’s responsible disposal.

Previously stored jobs on the machines hard drive may contain sensitive business information. For this reason you should use a reliable and reputable disposal company. We ensure that the hard drive is either wiped or destroyed as part of the disposal process.

Step 1

We identify the best service option and quote accordingly.


We arrange a collection using our own secure transportation and staff.


Equipment is logged and loaded into our vehicles.


We process the equipment at our licensed recycling facility. Equipment that can be reused is tested, otherwise it is stripped for materials.


Once complete, we issue a recycling report and data destruction certificate

How is a Photocopier recycled?

Every photocopier and printer is inspected to see if it can be reused. Can we refurbish the printer to have a second life elsewhere? Or could the parts be used to repair another machine? If the machine is end of life or beyond economic repair we recycle and recover the materials.

As part of the recycling process we destroy the data on the hard drive. This is either through secure wiping or physical destruction of the drive. Your data is securely destroyed and a data destruction certificate is provided.
